Walmart ScanRight Guarantee


I recently learned that Walmart has a ScanRight Guarantee. On the check writing table, there is a sign with some information on it. At the very bottom is information about the ScanRight Guarantee.

If an item does not ring up at the right price, Walmart will correct the mistake AND take $3 off your total! If the item costs less then $3, then the item is free.

(In my experience with other stores, you will often have to remind them of their policy if/when a price does not ring up correctly.)

Victoria's Secret Sweet Daydream Body Scrub-Updated!


Click here to get a coupon for a free full size Victoria's Secret Sweet Daydream Body Scrub with any purchase! Thanks to the Centsible Sawyer for such a great find!

Authentic Thai Food At Home - Part 1

We are so blessed to have my brother and his wife living with us until the fall. My sister-in-law, Bum, is Thai and has taught me so much about Thai cooking. We love Thai food and try to prepare it several times a week to help her feel at home while in the U.S.

If you were to go out to eat an authentic Thai restaurant, you would probably pay at least $10/plate. However, cooking Thai food at home can be very affordable and healthy.

Here is a list of basic ingredients to have on hand before you begin:

Ground Pork/Turkey

Chicken Breasts

Fresh Garlic

Eggs

Jasmine Rice (available at Walmart)

Coconut Milk (available at Walmart)

Fresh Thai Chilis (see below)

Thai Basil (see below)

Soy Sauce (see below)

Oyster Sauce (see below)


Thai Chilis are VERY HOT! Be careful not to rub your eyes when preparing chilis! You can usually find these at Asian food stores or you can grow them in your garden.

Thai Basil is different from the Italian Basil that most of us are familiar with. You can sometimes buy fresh clippings of this basil at Asian food stores or better yet, buy your own Thai Basil plant at a greenhouse. It can be grown outside during warm months and inside in a bright window during cold months.


Any oyster sauce and soy sauce will work fine, but here is a photo of the oyster sauce and Golden Mountain Soy Sauce we use.

Think you are ready to give it a try? In my next post of Authentic Thai Food At Home, I'll give you a simple recipe to get you started. You'll love it!

(Click here to read about Marcus and Bum's journey as missionaries to Thailand.)

Free Pack of Baseball Cards -Today only!

Click here to get a free pack of baseball cards to celebrate National Baseball Card Day. Available today only!

(If your not into collecting baseball cards, think birthday gift filler for a little guy in your life;-)
